Honors Concert

DSC 0162Description

Each year, IPSF, in partnership with the Irvine Unified School District (IUSD), presents the Donald Bren Honors Concert. Students are selected by audition and all performers demonstrate exceptional ability and commitment. Nearly 700 of Irvine's finest young musicians in grades 5-12 participate in this memorable event and perform before an audience of more than 1,500 distinguished guests and family members.


An Award Winning Program

Over the past 33 years, more than 20,000 students have participated in this dynamic performance opportunity and all proceeds go to maintaining IUSD’s award-winning music program. The students in Irvine schools are fortunate to have a community that values and invests in music education. Without your generous support, this unique experience for these aspiring and talented students would not be possible.


34th Annual Donald Bren Honors Concert

This year’s concert will be held on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 at the Renée & Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.

Audition information will be sent home through all vocal and instrumental music classes beginning in December. For more information, please visit http://iusd.org/vapa/HonorsConcert.html.
